I haven't been truthful with you or myself i guess. i want the best for claire excatly like you do for your loved ones. she came back from a massive stroke, 3 brain surgeries...numerous hoops she had to jump thru. this is very difficuolt to write. she
has a masters in education, named teacher of the year twice in her 23 years of. teaching we live in city of @ 275,000 folks. she teaches the best of the best, smartest, brightess students. her children love her. no one works harder then claire when it comes
to preparing herself and her kids for what lies ahead. she is a mentor and an inspiration to so many. i hate going shopping with her. folks that she taught "back in the day" MUST come up and say hi. when she was not here with me, i remember on 3 different
occasions, folks i didn't know stopping me and asking about her. she is so well loved! i guess this is good news...she is having to take a medical retirement. she has had 12 seizures since her stroke june 8th 2009. she is on more medicine , hopefully it will
control the seizures. her last day teaching is dec 17th. i truly believe that she ( and i) were spared a death because there is another calling for her. folks there is not a mean bone in her body, she has never hurt anyone by mouth, action or deed. mass sunday
mornings with her mother. i wish i was half the person she is. an amazing journey she has been sent on! she is a fighter! she gets tired now quicker, her math skills are pretty rough. she is determined to get better. she has begun teaching herself spanish
for fun....that's how she rolls....just crazy smart! i hate the idea that she can not continue with what she loves. it truly breaks my heart! she told her princpal monday and has sent in her resigination to the school board the same day. it was tough watching
her type it. i thought she was e-mailing our moose about wheter or not she had got her graduation gown and cap for her graduation this friday. she has told our daughters and mother but not her sisters yet...i don't know when she intends to. they do too much
as it is. we will get by. as temple grandin would say,"a door opened and WE walked thru it."
